A Masters of Science in Biology with an Emphasis in Education degree from Grand Canyon University supports students with biology backgrounds as they pursue careers in education.Colleges are in needs of highly-qualified STEM instructors.
Building on the solid biology background they already have, students in the GCU MS in biology education program continue their scientific studies and learn teaching techniques to help them thrive in the classroom.
Both research and practical application of biology topics and teaching skills are at the heart of this master's degree program.
“Being a professor allows me to integrate two things that I love - teaching and research.
In this setting, I have the opportunity to work closely with students and mentor them as they put what they’ve learned in class to use.
Graduates of this masters in biology education degree program will be prepared to teach undergraduate biology courses at two and four-year institutions.
In addition, the preparation they receive through their MS in biology coursework allows grads to teach in online environments.
Many students select this degree to prepare for a career or graduate study in medicine, dentistry, nursing and public health.
82% of our Biology graduates have been accepted into medical, dental, physician assistant and veterinarian schools.
Seeing students get inspired by the science, and in turn inspiring me to be a better teacher and scientist is a very rewarding process!
“Over the years, I’ve learned that giving students direct, quick feedback and close one-on-one support works best for heading off frustration and keeping students engaged. I remind them that this is real science, so often times, I don’t know what’s going to happen either.” Along with personal attention and mentorship from their professors, our students have access to offices and programs outside of the classroom that support their success.
